Featuring Red Cedar Chamber Music and Michael Zahs

Presented by The Englert Theatre, FilmScene, and the Johnson County Historical Society

 

The Brinton Silent Film Project features Red Cedar Trio members - flutist Jan Boland, guitarist John Dowdall and cellist Carey Bostian - performing live to accompany “an exceptionally rare, perhaps unique, collection” of silent films from 1895-1910. These films, being viewed for the first time in over 100 years, comprise “perhaps the most significant collection of early films in the world.” Film owner and historian Michael Zahs will also be on hand to discuss the films.

 

The concert features music by Harvey Sollberger, which accompanies four of the films. Arrangements by Boland and Dowdall and music from Red Cedar Chamber Music's repertory complement the remaining 18 silent films, ranging in length from 10 seconds to 10 minutes. The films include comedy, drama, special effects, foreign scenes and magic by Georges Méliès, whose life story was featured in the film Hugo.
